SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

This week's Beer of the Week is the Farmer John from Davenport's Great River Brewery.

It is an American-style brown ale with a medium body. This classic style brown ale stands apart from most other craft brews because it is offered in a can.

The brew features mild tastes of coffee and hints of caramel. It's grainy, but not so much that it's off-putting. Farmer John has a mild fruit nose.

"It's a good grilling companion, and it would go well with classic English cuisine," said Joe Hotek of John's Grocery, 401 E. Market St.

Perhaps the best part of this beer is that it's an area product. So don't forget to invite Farmer John to your next cookout.
